Baby Jesus Is Not Jesus Lite

by on Dec.03, 2017, under Hope

Baby Jesus is everywhere this time of year.  He is in Nativity scenes and live mangers.  He is a baby doll here and a live baby there.  He is the center of children plays and Christmas stories.  Away in a Manger and Joy to the World.  Christmas songs everyone knows that were written about baby Jesus.

Babies are cute, sweet, and cuddly.  Baby Jesus is no exception.  For many people, baby Jesus is Jesus lite.  You know, all the fun without all the difficult stuff.  Tastes good but no calories.  And that is the way many people want to see Jesus.  Christmas and baby Jesus is not near as intense as Easter with all that talk of dying and resurrection.

But do not be fooled by baby Jesus.  He is not the sanitized version of the Son of God.  Here is why…

Baby Jesus grew up.  He died.  And he was raised from the dead.  That is why he was born in the first place.

Jesus came from heaven to earth to save us from our sins.  He did that by dying on that cross. 

So baby Jesus is not just a cute story for Christmas.

He is the way, the truth, and the life.  And no one comes to the Father except by him. 

So look beyond the baby and see the Savior of the world. 

He wants to be your Savior too.  

Blessings, 

steve
